Noel Rowe, the editor of the new encyclopedic text, All the World’s Primates (Pogonias Press 2016), founded Primate Conservation, Inc. in 1992 after witnessing the destruction of a lowland forest in Madagascar. Since making its first grant in 1993, PCI has provided full, partial, or renewal funding for more than 650 projects in 29 countries with primate habitats. Rowe will talk about his new book and the state of primate conservation around the world.
